    Nice pictures here, mine looks so simple compared to a lot of others here. I'm starting to like the gloss paint valve cover look more and more.

    Ketchup, in this picture, whats going on with your intake pipe where the 4 clamps are? Mines all one piece there. Did yours have to be cut at some point?

    Many of the Mk1 folks installed a TRD radiator instead of the one included in the system. When you do that you have ton run a billet grill and space the intake forward for clearance.

    You have to do the same thing to run the URD TCAI with the TRD supercharger.

    Ohh ok I didn't know he was using the trd radiator. Makes sense now. I'd like to do that to mine too in the future.

    The first one is a 5VZ-FE 3.4L V6 Twin Turbo.

    The second one is the new version of the 1GR-FE with the dual VVTi.

    The 5.0 is available as a turn key crate engine.

    Lots of off road folks are using them now. Comes with ECU and everything needed to run it.
